As a scavenger and collector, my paintings reconcile competing histories located in the afterlife of thrift store novelties, home movies and vernacular photography. Situated within the traditions of Baroque genre painting and still-life, my work invokes fantastical fictions located in our colloquial artifacts and personal mementos. Effigies to the fleeting and overlooked, my work serves as a testament to the minutia dividing the sublime and mundane. I was born in San Francisco, raised in Honolulu and now divide my time between Bradenton, Florida and Berkeley, CA. I have exhibited my work in Atlanta, GA, Miami, FL and have been featured in publications including New American Paintings, Studio Visit Magazine, and Manifest INPA. I received my MFA from the University of Florida and BFA from California College of Arts and Crafts. Currently, I am Associate Professor of Art at New College of Florida.
